My family and I Stayed here this past weekend looking at the lobby it looks to be a very nice hotel but after you leave the lobby the rest was awful, we could not wait to leave if hadn't been getting charged a fee we would have. The room was very nasty and looked to have not been cleaned ever.... More

I find that a lot of the reviews on here are a little bit too ridiculous. Are you really expecting a five-star hotel? I read all the reviews before I got here and I still disregarded them and gave this place a shot. Damn, people can be so picky. The lobby is pretty, the service was very friendly, and the... More

I have travelled to Sandusky from Northern Michigan 6 times in the last two summers as my daughter has been working at Cedar Point. This last time, I needed to get her and bring her back, so I came by myself. It was going to be a quick trip, arriving late Sunday and returning on Monday, so I checked for... More

My husband and I booked this place a few weeks ago due to the affordable rate and its close proximity to the Ohio Turnpike and Cedar Point. We were a little nervous reading some of the reviews after we booked. However, we were impressed that the GM has commented on virtually all of the reviews, both good and bad. To... More

The lobby area smelled like stagnant cigarettes. The room was absolutely filthy! The floor appeared not to be swept for some time. The carpet was stained and matted down in spots. The A/C appeared to have bird poop in the inside grate. The price wasn’t exactly cheap at $109 w/tax. The couple traveling with us said their toilet ran all... More

Stained towels, bedspread and carpets, felt dirtier leaven after a shower the next day, the only positive is staff very friendly and helpful. We would not stay here again or recommend to anyone.

Here's the deal....it's cheap compared to the other hotels in the area. The 'breakfast' was the only thing I would complain about. It wasn't a breakfast, but that's ok.....it's close to many decent places to eat. No fridge or microwave....but, again...that's OK! The rooms were clean, the staff was fine....What in the world can you complain about when you choose... More
